little drummer boy lyrics – jars of clay

come, they told me (pa-rum-pa-pum-pum)
a newborn king to see (pa-rum-pa-pum-pum)
our finest gifts we bring (pa-rum-pa-pum-pum)
to lay before the king (pa-rum-pa-pum-pum) [x 3]
so, to honor him (pa-rum-pa-pum-pum)
when we come

little baby (pa-rum-pa-pum-pum)
i am a poor boy too (pa-rum-pa-pum-pum)
i have no gifts to bring (pa-rum-pa-pum-pum)
that’s fit to give a king (pa-rum-pa-pum-pum) [x 3]
shall i play for you (pa-rum-pa-pum-pum)
on my drum?

mary nodded (pa-rum-pa-pum-pum)
the ox and lamb kept time (pa-rum-pa-pum-pum)
i played my drum for him (pa-rum-pa-pum-pum)
i played my best for him (pa-rum-pa-pum-pum) [x 3]
then, he smiled at me (pa-rum-pa-pum-pum)
me and my drum
